    I am on a roof top mounted antena that gets good Analog reception. I connected the Insignia converter box as directed in the instructions. After running the search for channels I get the local subchannels, which I could never recieve without the conveter, however, I can't get the main channels? I ran through the installation several timnes but to no avail.

    I called the 1-800 help number and was told that I would not beable to recieve the base channels until after they had changed to didigital? The individual seemed more interested in getting my marketing information, ie name, telephone and email etc.? I figured he was not an actual technitian, but a marketing person so i'm trying here.

    I hope you can help? Best Buy has never let me down on other products.

    After hooking up my converter box to my tv antenna and following the steps given I am not able to receive any channels I'm getting a no signal message on my tv screen. What's wrong?

  • bchase10 Jun 24, 2008

    My insignia converter is hooked up correctly. The channels have been scanned. All of my local except one come in very clear. I even get channels that I never recieved before. One channel that is local, WRC has digital service, but my converter is saying no signal on the screen. I used to be able to receive that channel with the rabbit ears. Now with the rabbit ears connected to the converter this channel does not come in at all. But the others do. Is there a solution?

    When we first got the box, we got all the regular channels, plus a bunch of new ones. Our public TV (Channel 11) gave us 4 options. Now all of those channels show "no signal."

    Inconsistent reception.  After first installing units upstairs and downstairs, got all stations except Channel 4 (CBS).  In afternoon, received Channel 4; everything is great.  

    Late last night, no signal at all upstairs.  Today, no channel 2 (Fox) upstairs, no channel 4 up or down.

    I have an amplified antenna.   This makes no sense.

    I have hooked up my converter box and get no signal nothing works.

    I have a very large outdoor tv antenna that works perfectly for analog. When I connected the digital converter box, I do not get all of the channels I once did. Some of the channels that were clear before now indicate "no signal" or 10% at most. Reaiming the antenna still did not correct the problem.

I had the same problem, but then I figured out that after running the channel search and after it locks all your channels in, the Insignia remote become the remote you use to change channels. (You can't use your regular TV remote to change channels as it will just show a "fuzzy" screen.) I still have to use the TV remote for power and sometimes volume, but the Insignia remote is the channel changer one.

Double check ALL your ant wire connections. Then reprogram the converter to check for stations again. If that doesn't work then reposition your antenna and reprogram again.

This is an older system that has worked just fine for years. Out of the "blue" the DVD player will no longer play the movies in color, only black and white.

More than likely when children are around. It could be that they have changed the colour settings, perhaps it is now in NTSC when you have a PAL set?

If you can't find anything on the menu use the restore factory settings option. I should warn you if you have changed the settings to play multi-region and it wasn't before, this will return it to the correct region code. But as long as you know how to reset it back to multi-region you can do this.

Trace the TV audio back to its source - TV or Cable Box most likely. We have no way of knowing which. Substitute in another source to test the input.

If DVD audio works so does the basic HTS.

Continuing from last night

First thing you might want to try is hooking up the lifestyle directly to the tv without the vs-2. So we can eliminate that as a problem. I assume everything is going to that. There are some issues with these systems it seems but lets see if we can work it out though.
Keep me posted,

Insignia NS-DXA1 - Digital to Analog converter box

I have had my converter box 5 days now. I hooked it up to the TV and set it up. No Problem. Except there are no instructions on how to set up the VCR/DVD player with it, which we use more than we do watching TV. Everything worked fine until on the second day we had it I read I could program the remote to turn the TV on and off. I followed the instructions and the TV went off. When I turned it back on, my remote went berserk. If I try to change a channel it will quickly flip through all the channels until I turn the converter box off. Same with the volume, it goes up and down, up and down until I shut off the box. The remote does not work unless you are about 1 foot away from the box. And the remote has never turned the TV on or off except that first time I programed it.
